Liverpool are turning to veteran Andy Lonergan to solve their goalkeeping problems with the 35-year-old set to sign a one-year deal at Anfield as they wait for news on the extent of Alisson Becker's injury.
Alisson limped out of Liverpool's Premier League victory over Norwich on Friday night, handing former West Ham keeper Adrian a quick debut just a day after he signed as back-up to the Brazilian.
The injury plunged Liverpool into a goalkeeping crisis with long-term stopper Simon Mignolet only just moving back to Belgium with Club Brugge, while Kamil Grabara is on a season-long loan at Championship side Huddersfield Town
Even youngsters Vitezslav Jaros and Caiomhin Kelleher both struggling with injuries and, despite talk of a return for Loris Karius, Jurgen Klopp is opting for the experienced veteran Lonergan.
Karius himself is out injured so his return from Turkey was never really an option, but Lonergan did himself no harm when coming into the Liverpool squad as cover during pre-season.
Having not played a league game since turning out for Rochdale against Scunthorpe in League One back in March, Lonergan is now likely to take a place on the bench for Wednesday's UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea in Turkey.
